Anything to reduce ooze with cool head lift?

Recommended Posts

Your question is not clear. Cool head lift leaves little strings but they are very easy to clean up. Usually. This is for very very skinny things like the antennas on the top of the robot. Alternatively you can print a tower next to the robot which results in a beautiful print - it makes a huge difference. It does seem a waste but we are talking about very small amount of money.

Ideally place the tower such that you get good fan blowing on your "antenna" or whatever it is that prints in less than 5 seconds per layer.

I can't argue with the fact that it's a pretty small amount of money, but the tower can only be so big and take so long to print. I guess I'll work on improving my cooling though, that's probably my best bet. Thanks for your input though.

I know this forum is centered around the Ultimaker, but are questions about other printers are allowed in sections like The Art of Printing?

You can use a small cylinder 5mm wide to do the tower ;)

For questions relating to other printers they can be asked of course but for specific problems you might not get good answers as most of the users here only have Ultimakers. But some problems can be faced with Ultimakers and other printers so it can make sense sometimes

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
